The ACR Foundation Board is excited to announce the ACR Foundation Global Humanitarian Awards. The awards will be given to individuals and organizations making a significant contribution in providing or increasing access to quality radiological services for patients in the United States and the developing world.
The awards will be given in three distinct categories: individual radiologists, organizations (including non-profit and industry groups), and non-radiologists (including medical physicists, radiologic technologists, ultrasonographers, and other radiological personnel).
Since the ACR Foundation’s inception in the mid-2000s, its involvement in international outreach has revealed a significant level of activity aimed at improving access to sustainable, quality radiological care in the developing world. The foundation believes that these awards will recognize individuals and organizations for their humanitarian efforts while focusing attention on the ongoing need for radiological service throughout the world.
Applicants for the award may either be self-nominated or nominated by a peer. Information about the award, including the official application, may be found at http://bit.ly/ACRHumanitarianAward or you may contact the ACR Foundation International Outreach Program staff at 800-227-5463 ext. 4956.
